Ya, I'm lost as well.

Yes, those same Stampeders that in the playoff game in 2019 couldn't generate a single point in the final 30 minutes of the game! Takes a real "high quality" team to not be able to score even 1 point in an entire second half of playoff football.

lol That was 2 years ago after 3 straight Grey Cup appearances. No matter how good you are you can't maintain that high level every single playoff and Calgary was a tired team in the beginning of a transition period (yes in Calgary 12-6 is a transition period).

I thought 'transitition periods' were what those grumpy alien women in Star Trek got between periods. :crazy_face:

I wonder if BC will put up a better fight this game (by 'better fight' I mean 'some fight'... 'any fight'). They haven't brought in any new talent along the offensive line and Lucky Whitehead is still on the shelf. Does BC management know they have an obvious weakness or two or three when it comes to pass protection? :thinking:

I think the Lions are in tough the rest of the way, a cross over in best chance. Do they play Hamilton? Its been 10 yrs since this team made any noise and a shame they could have "transitioned " better themselves post Wally Buono

That is all too true, Lions have struggled since Wally and for far too long.

I have a good feeling they will put up a much better fight today at IG Field. It’s great to see that Reilly is finally off the Injury Report (Limited). My Grandfather always said even the best golfers can’t play their best golf if they always have limited practice.

Go Lions Go

Let's not get carried away. In 2019 Hamilton started 9-2. The Bombers started 14-2 in 2001, 10-1 in 1993. All of them lost the Cup game. At least they played. Lions started 11-0 (2005) & 9-1 two years later. The team with the most regular season wins (Edm 16) started 8-1, Stamps went 58-14 in the Garcia/Flutie years with two starts of 14-1. Als started 12-1. All of those teams except one Stamp squad didn't even make it to the Cup. BTW, those 1995 Stamps lost. Hot streaks are not unusual. So 9-1, 10-1 Bombers - ho hum. Seen it before - LOTS.
